Great choice!! Most don't realize just how much storage the 1140 has.


You do when it's gone....

I had an '03 1140, now I have a 2012 1150. That is what I miss the most about it, my gawd it had a lot of storage.

What made you both go from the 1140 to the 1150

Here is my reasons....the floor plan of the 1150 is more roomy...there is a nice place to sit in front of the wardrobe closet to get dressed. The Vent hood in the kitchen is not vented to the outside of the TC in the 1140 (a very important one if you cook a lot) and the storage behind it is in a weird place and hard to get to. There are some pluses to the 1140...they have more storage and a bigger fridge. There are more reasons for having mine built. I had a list of add on's...here are a few. I have dual pane windows, 100 watt solar(never have one with out ever again) auto scanning satellite dish, carpet kit, outboard lights on the left and right, no graphics (love that no pealing sticker thing)...so there is a few. They are great TC's either way.

Just wondering! we were looking at both and decided to go with the 1140 because of storage. We have a 6 year old and 4 year old and need all the space we can get. We actually love the storage behind the stove all of the kids sleeping bags and bed clothes fit there were as before there was really no place to put that stuff.

We went with the 1140 for the larger 8 cu ft frig and the extra storage, both inside and out. I dont know what I would do without the large outside slide out storage bin. The 1140's stove exhaust fan wasn't an issue for us since we can adequately vent out by using the ceiling fans if we have to. Our previous MH had the same type of exhaust fan so I guess we were used to it. We gained our wardrobe closet space by ordering the optional full wall bedroom wardrobe. Again, tons of storage just to add to what the 1140 already has.

Mine's the same as KKeller's, much more roomy. It has sooo much more interior space.

Everything's a compromise. In the end, we're all temporarily living in a space where a 4x8 sheet of plywood was meant to fit, so we have to decide what's more important. There's only so much magic they can do with that kind of a space limitation.

What I want to do next is figure out how I can squeeze a RV recliner in it. I have a really nice set of recliners out of an Alfa Class A, I'm thinking I can make some sort of modified mount for it to make it fit.
